14.3. Other investment is the residual category of finance measured in balance of payments and international investment position statistics. The standard components of other investment are set out in table 14.2. It covers finance not included in direct investment, portfolio investment and reserve assets. (See Chapters 12 and 13 for definitions of direct and portfolio investment respectively. Reserve assets are defined in paragraphs 14.5 to 14.8.) It includes such instruments as trade credits, loans, currency and deposits, and other assets and liabilities, each of which is discussed in box 11.3.

14.4. As with portfolio investment, other investment is primarily split into foreign assets (claims on non-residents) and liabilities (obligations to non-residents). Each of these components is further split into four major instrument categories: trade credits, loans, currency and deposits, and other assets/liabilities. In turn, each instrument is shown, where appropriate, by institutional sector: Reserve Bank, general government, depository corporations, and other sectors (defined in box 11.2), and instruments other than currency and deposits are shown by long-term and short-term (see paragraph 11.17). Long-term loan liabilities are generally further split into drawings and repayments.
